Kieselstein-Cord, Barry

(1945- )
   Born in New York City, Kieselstein-Cord was introduced to jewelry design when he took a jewelry class with a girlfriend. He started his own jewelry business in 1972. In 1973, George Jensen was the first to introduce Kiesel-stein-Cord's exquisitely crafted fine jewelry and belt buckles that had mythological, equestrian, and animal themes. He is a two-time Coty Award winner and is also the recipient of a Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) award. In addition to jewelry, his range includes handbags, luggage, home furnishings, tabletop accessories, lamps, a limited-edition humidor, and furniture. He also licenses scarves, ties, and eyewear. In 2005, Kieselstein-Cord launched Crocodile Hall, a collection of affordable totes and handbags based on his signature crocodile inspiration.
